"Mom, you really like to take pictures of yourself, don't you?", he said with a smile.
"Yeah, I guess I do. I guess your Mom's crazy that way." I replied, with a smile back.
This blogging addiction has made me do a lot of things I wouldn't have thought I would do in a million years.
I haven't put up a Fashion Friday post in a while. Not much posting about anything, truth be told. There's a lot of stuff happening lately, my head is spinning and my stomach is doing flip flops as I re-examine my life, my goals and how they fit in with my precious family. Emotions have run high and low. Pretty serious stuff.
It's time to do something completely frivolous again.
This time, however, there's an actual goal to this posting of my wardrobe. What to wear to BlogHer? It didn't seem that important to me at first, but the stakes are higher now. (And if you're sick of reading about BlogHer, please feel free to plug your ears, sing "la-la-la" and look away - that's what I did last year. I'm trying to keep these posts to a minimum but I'm just too freakin' excited to completely shut up about it.)
It appears that fashion guru Tim Gunn of Project Runway fame, will be in attendance at BlogHer 09, next week. And as I read about the various fashion dilemmas floating around the blogosphere, I noted that I myself, have no idea what I will be donning for the three day whirlwind. I'm going to check out his appearance, and if I'm lucky, might get a one-on-one session with him.
I guess the grunge, "I borrowed my 16 year old daughter's Ed Hardy Tee" look probably won't work, especially since I don't even have a 16 year old daughter. (Get this: my son says that my new hair cut is pretty and reminds him of Demi Lovato; so perhaps I am trying a mite too hard):
But I hear that butterflies are all the rage this year. I am contemplating this outfit, and because my husband hates this dress, it's probably better that he's not accompanying me to Chicago. And never say never to leggings, even though I did and lived to blog about it:
Or maybe another boho look (no, I'm not pregnant, but where the heck were these clothes when I was?):
And finally, I think I will pack this little mini number:
With another LBD under consideration.
In all seriousness, I'm not too stressed about this. After all, I'm not attending as part of my business; sure, I'll be there to learn a little about this whole blogging explosion, but my mission is to finally meet and have good times with some people who have become friends. To be a part of this blogging community, in real life. And perhaps make new friendships along the way. Two hundred of them if I'm lucky, as I don't want to be stuck with a whole buncha Mini Moo.
I'll be trying my darnedest to be just: Me.
In cute shoes, of course.
